    Hello Boons,

    Steam Valve will soon have Game-Client Competitors.
    That mean New Top EA- Game will not maybe sell anymore in Steamstore like Battlefield 3, Star Wars. The Old Republic and other Games.

    The New Competitors called "Origin" link:http://www.origin.com/nz/about
    And this Application is directly from EA-Games.

    Greets Sunshine :)

    yes and I hate them with a passion for doing that, fuck them honestly. Next up is Activision and Ubisoft, the other 2 terrible companies to follow. Games for Windows Live nr. 2, 3 and 4.

    Makes you wonder why there is a PC at all, putting platforms on your platform..

    Why would you want anything other than Steam? Knowing EA its going to be a piss poor attempt with random messages appearing during games.

    Cuz we are better than console gamers. We need to have lots of hoops to jump through in the hope it slows us down.

    Xbox360 and PC are to start sharing platform I heard. Like disks will work in both if you have an account with xbox360 or something like that. Will try and find source but need to afk for a bit.

    Not sure about BF3, but in the case of The Old Republic, it was confirmed you don't need to use origin at all if you buy it at retail.

    IF Ea forces us to use Origin in order to play BF3 then I wont.

    There is no better way to prove to devs u dislike the product other then not buying it.

    The only time you'll need to use origin is if you purchase a digital copy of an EA game, if you purchased a retail copy you all good :)

    I will be devastated if they require you to install it for BF3 regardless of where I get the copy from. The only reason I like the bloatware that is steam and use it regularly is because it's made by one of the finest indie development studios and Valve deserve my money.

    EA can fuck right off if they think I'll accept their bloatware when I already have steam.
